DaveBB, I had a very similar experience to yours. On my SV-1 the note cut-off was very noticeable in the bass range and affected EPs as much as APs. It was the primary reason I sold the SV - it was no use in a solo or exposed situation. However, I lo

Jump to new posts Re: questions about tuning the top octave by Ed McMorrow, RPT @ Today at 08:00 PM

musicalman, Do you also hear poorly tuned notes at the very low bass? Are you judging the intonation in the treble via beats? The extremes of the piano compass are often poorly scaled and made. Ambient noise can also introduce added problems duri

I see this all the time at the schools I tune for. Interestingly at the end of summer, the last couple of notes leading up to the treble break will be flat and then the next few notes on the treble side of the break will be sharp! The reverse is true
